The lowest adoption rate was seed treatment (65.50%), followed by plant protection (66.56%). Most breeders have very little adoption (64.58%), followed by very little adoption (20.41%) and high adoption (15.00%). Most respondents had little knowledge of maize breeding technology (47.08%), followed by knowledge of maize breeding technology (32.50%) and a high level of understanding (20.83%). Corn growers have the highest level of knowledge about planting and land preparation, up to 79.88%, and rank first among farmers.
